I have been ignoring you, my poor blog! Remember when I mentioned that I sometimes struggle with giving you attention versus using that time to sew. Well, this past weekend was one of the situations.
As part of the Fabriholics Anonymous challenge, I pledged to reduce my fabric stash. For some reason, I was feeling really ambitious and started to post fabric I was willing to part with. Here are some of the great fabrics that are currently on their way to other crafter’s homes. I had a few treasures in there, that I didn’t think I was ever going to use.

If you look around my sewing room, it doesn’t really look like I made much of a dent in my fabric collection. However, I know that progress was made. My paypal account reflects that progress as well! Are you ready for this… my fabric sales added up to over $500. Crazy, I know!
I did have one caveat when I agreed to the Fabriholics Anonymous pledge…if I sold fabric from my stash, I could purchase fabric with that money. I purchased the backing for my Tula Pink Salt Water Hexie quilt and binding. I was able to find the hexagon (Tortoise) backing and binding for $6 a yard. I love a fabric bargain!
I ordered a half yard bundle of Tula Pink’s Fox Field. I like the colors, but it is very similar to the Acacia line. It didn’t “speak” to me as much as her other lines. However, as a Tula Troop member, I rather buy the fabric now rather than have regret. Some of her fabric gets scooped up so fast that it is hard to track down AND you end up paying more money for it. Tula Pink fans can be very hard core and have been known to hoard “the precious”. Says the lady who has Tula Pink Night Shade Coven yardage!
I will be posting more fabric at some point later this week. You should check out #thegreatfabricdestash on Instagram. There are some great deals and some amazing fabric to choose from. If the fabric is considered rare or out-of-print, you will pay more for it. Also if you happen to be looking for a certain fabric, there is a “in search of” option at #thegreatfabricdestashiso.
